The Flyers should carry three goaltenders until they can either find a trading partner or one of them gets injured. In order to do that, there is a really simple solution: waive injured defenseman Matt Walker. Walker has not played a single game for the Flyers since being acquired in the summer, and yet he costs the team $9,140 a day against the salary cap. That's as much as the Flyers are paying Dan Carcillo and Oskars Bartulis to be reserves. Even though Walker is injured, he can still be waived according to the NHL's Collective Bargaining Agreement (Article 13.6), so long as he sustained his injury in training camp. If Walker is waived, the Flyers would then over $5,000 below the daily cap limit, putting them on pace to be over $640,000 under the yearly cap. That's still not enough to cover all the potential bonuses, but it gives them room.
